Prayer Request

We received a call for a burn victim from the house fire in Everett the other day. Her name is Chase and she is the girlfriend of Josh Hayes; Tom Watkin’s grandson. Chase is in the hospital in Pittsburgh and will be receiving skin grafts in the days to come.

We are asking that you pray for Chase and the other victims of this fire. Pray that as Chase is having these grafts that the grafts will go well and heal quickly. Also pray that she will recover completely with few scars if any. Also pray that the Lord would lift her emotionally, and spiritually as she continues to heal and recuperate.

Thank You.

Prayer Requests

Hi Everybody,
 
First, we would like to send out a prayer request for Kitty Miller. Kitty had surgery on her sinuses this past Monday. We are asking that you pray that the pain and discomfort would subside quickly; that the surgery would be effective and that she would heal and be able to get back to her normal self. Pray also for her comfort as she recovers. 
 
We received a prayer request for Chet Dietrich’s wife, Nancy; friends of Kelly and Adena’s from treasure Lake. Nancy has had several strokes over the past month, and today she had a stroke and heart attack together. According to doctors, it is only a matter of time until she passes. We are asking you to pray for Nancy to receive her healing. We also ask that you would lift up Chet as he stays by her side. Please pray that Chet would be strengthened and comforted as he watches and waits. Pray that the load that Chet has been carrying over these past few weeks would be lifted off of his shoulders and his final hours with Nancy would be precious. Pray that God’s will would be done and that His good would be revealed in the days to come.
 
We also have a prayer request for Randy Imler’s brother Rudy. Rudy was taken to the VA’s Urgent care Sunday morning with some problems after his heart surgery last week. Urgent care decided to send him by ambulance to the hospital in Pittsburgh. They believe that he is retaining fluids and may have an infection. We ask that you would lift him up in your prayers that the infection is able to be treated quickly and easily and that he will heal quickly as well.
 
Thank you.

Prayer Requests

We received a prayer request from Liz for one of her neighbors, Norman Williams. Norman had surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from his abdomen. He is looking at 7-10 day in the hospital and then several weeks before he can begin to start back to his normal routine.

We ask that you pray for Norman’s healing and recovery; pray that the surgery goes as expected and that they are able to remove as much of the cancerous tumor as possible. Pray also for the medical staff working with him and also for his family. Pray that in the days to come that the Lord would make His presence known in an unmistakable way.

Also, we wanted to send out an update and ask you to continue to pray for Penny’s brother Alan Brown. He was having surgery to repair some hernias in his abdomen. They were able to repair one in his stomach but another one was in a location that was difficult to get to. Additionally, his gall bladder was inflamed so badly that they were not able to get to to remove it so they stopped the surgery. They later found that his gallbadder is misshapen. Theyare sending him to Pittsburgh to complete the surgery. Please pray for Alan and the medical staff working with him. Pray that his trip will be quick and uneventful; pray that they are able to go in and complete the repairs to the remaining hernias. Pray also for Alan’s recovery, that he would heal quickly and completely and that his recovery would not take long. Pray also for his family, pray for his wife Marti and son Cagney, as well as his mom Marie, and his brother and sisters.
 
Thank You Pastor Kevin

A Couple of Prayer Requests

We received a couple prayer requests from Sandy Titmus; first for Tom Wood, the son of one of Sandy’s friends. Tom has been taken to the hospital and is in need of a liver. The unfortunate thing is they are afraid he may be too weak to survive the surgery. So, we are asking that you pray for the Lord to strengthen Tom, give him the strength to not only survive the surgery and treatment but to also make a full recovery. Pray also that a liver is able to be transplanted into Tom’s body.  Also pray for Tom and his family to be comforted by the Lord and that they would find the Lord’s peace in each new day.

Next, Sandy’s friend Robert Bingham is still in the hospital in Pittsburgh after two surgeries on his knee which is badly infected. We ask that you pray for Robert’s healing that his knee is able to be fixed and the infection is eliminated. Pray that Robert is able to return home fully healed in the days to come and that he would continue to rely on the Lord.

Thank You
